Monogamy

Discuss - and no gags about wood

is wood tho innit?

You'll have to tell me what it means fist?

mo·nog·a·my (mə-nŏg'ə-mç) n.The practice or condition of having a single sexual partner during a period of time.The practice or condition of being married to only one person at a time.The practice of marrying only once in a lifetime.Zoology. The condition of having only one mate during a breeding season or during the breeding life of a pair.

It's a way of life.

I once heard someone say:"Monogamy is a small price to pay for the privelege of knowing one other person completely."LMFAO!!!!!!They were obviously on crack at the time.I prefer that song:"You make me cum.You make me complete.You make me completely miserable."Sums up monogamy for me.

Ive been married for 6 years and had sex 3 times......... does that count?

This is a very short period of time I assume. In which case I think it's great, till I get to try a threesome that is, then I'll be able to let you know if I've changed my mind.

BIGAMY is having one wife too many.MONOGAMY is exactly the same.

Are Swans really monogamous?

Its a great game........but only if I can be the racing car.

as in Hi-Fidelity?er...No thanksEven if you have the most fantastic girl at home ready to f@ck your brains out at anytime, the male of the specias still want sto graze away.And I reckon that goes for the female too.That's why you meet married couples who have been swinging for years and are still married...

Why you asking..... something your not telling us eh.?

Sorry, sex with yourself doesn't count.

Yes, she was dam ugly when she was young and now she's gorgeous I'm convinced she's seeing someone else!Possibly a Turkey?

Lovely wood tho, looks nice stained As for staying committed to one person, what can i say when you find the right person it shouldn't really enter your mind.But if you haven't then do what ever you conscience(?) allows.Personally only cheated a couple of times but i didn't really like the gf i had at the time.

fuck, ok make that once then

Well I think Monogamy's great.....I only want one person, so wouldn't go looking for other blokes Aint love grand! Never felt it like this before, so I'm not gonna go and chuck it away. (sorry, came over all mushy then!! LOL)

Brilliant! LMFSO

thats it Im not reading any more of Chipko's messages

Was that you on the News on May Day then? With 'HUMAN' written across your chest from nipple to nipple?

Use the spellchecker it should read Monotony

Human's got a strop on, that's STROP not STRAP, don't want to start something off here.Handbags at dawn my good man.I did put a serious point in aswell you know. :smoke:

Monogamy works if its what you both want......as does infidelity (or what ever you want to call it) if you both don't.......its about both being of a like mind.......so if introducing that 3rd, 4th, .........person suits you do it!!! if it doesn't, DON'TI like the wooden jokes though so I think they should both be allowed to stay!!!

I thought the no jokes about wood reference meant no jokes about stiffies... I hand't even considered the mahogany thing.Bloody hell!

Monogomy is social conditioning brought about by the factors surrounding reproduction. In some countries the men are so rich (from oil, etc) they can afford to support many wives and children. In others they are so poor (barren farming land, etc) that brothers need to share a single wife.Biologically men want to father as many children as possible, hence the desire to shag loads of chicks. Women want stability and provision for their children. They have a big investment in carrying a child for 9 months so are looking for rich and/or influential men, plus a commitment from the man to look after her and her children when she can't do it herself.In the western world, with the price of houses and the cost of living, most men can only support a single family. Monogomy gives the man sex on tap and relative certainty over his parentage of any offspring. For the woman she has protection and support for her and her child.But this only needs to last long enough for the child to lose full dependence on its mother. After a couple of years the mother can leave the child for short periods to fend for them both, so doesn't need the father. The father doesn't need to provide for the mother in exchange for sex on tap, so is free to look elsewhere.So after a few years, both parents are in a position to look for other partners, hence increasing the genetic diversity of the species, and encouraging competition in the fight to get and keep the best mating partners.'Love' holds them together for this short period of time, then fades into 'companionship'. This is the 3 (or however many) Year Itch, both sexes often feeling the need to start anew to get back the feelings of excitement.I shall be signing books in the lobby

Silent's never been married then....

And it's all coming out of the woodwork now! I get me coat.

Originally posted by lesaint Silent's never been married then.... Nope, but I'll bet that if, as in the old days, you hadn't slept together until you were married, you'd get it loads for the first couple of years.If you've lived together for 20 years before tying the knot then you're already well into the companionship phase, the sex on tap's still there, only the interest may not be.

SM...thats all well and good, but what about when you just want to be together with no kids??

The book in question being Pease's "Why men don't listen and women can't read maps"?

Originally posted by NC30 Girl SM...thats all well and good, but what about when you just want to be together with no kids?? The underlying social and biological influences still count. Most people will get the 'itch' in time, regardless of kids, I was just explaining why it happens that people split up and cheat on each other.

Hmm, OK then. Thinkif you truly have a love for each other you will be together forever, with no need to cheat whatsoever.I believe that cheating starts when communication breaks down. If you can't find out what you want from each other, then you can't be happy together. You need to talk through problems, not keep things to yourself etc.When you stop sharing these things you stop caring and look elsewhere.

Sometimes yas just dying for a dorty shag with a hooar

There's also the issue of genetic diversity. In this respect, monogamous(sp?) relationships may not be doing humans any good. The more females one male can impregnate, the greater the genetic diversity within the species, and the greater chance of beneficial mutation and Darwin's "survival of the fittest". Natural selection is dependant on genetic diversity within species.

Originally posted by chipko The book in question being Pease's "Why men don't listen and women can't read maps"? Men don't listen because they're too busy thinking about food or sex. Women don't really care, they just use speech as another method of making sure they understand and are being understood - doesn't matter what they're actually saying so they just whitter on about not much. Comes from having to be nurturing to babies - men don't need to, so don't pick up on all the subtle nuances women use in conversation to guage the mood.Women can't read maps because the part of their brain responsible for spacial awareness is not as good as mens. They can do it, but not as well as men, so tend to turn the map rather than 'seeing' the route in their mind's eye. Probably something to do with not having to throw spears at dinosaurs.

Didn't I just say that in my 1st post?

Tee Hee - my blokes loads better with kids than me I can't think of a single thing to say to my 2yr old niece-2-b (that'll be Dave's niece then) so I just resort to tickling her to keep her amused :burnout:

Originally posted by NC30 Girl When you stop sharing these things you stop caring and look elsewhere. I have it the other way around. When you stop caring you stop sharing. And you're genetically programmed to stop caring after a couple of years.Not to say that you'll stop liking each other's company enough to split up, but I think there's a point of resignation where people just accept the devil they know because it's easier or too late for them to start looking for a new mate. Middle aged people who've been married a long time still cheat for the excitement but tend not to split up, probably partly through not wanting to give up the companionship, and partly through not being under the same drive to reproduce - if you don't want or can't have more kids then the father isn't an issue, hence you're less likely to get upset if your wife cheats. I'm sure the incidence of 'forgiveness' increases with the age of the people involved and the relationship in question.

Er ... I know. I read it too and finally understand what Mrs Chipko's been banging on about all these years ... why she can't park, why I can't find the butter in the fridge etcNow all I have to do is get HER to read it.

... nothing to do with having to give the old bag half the house, the car and your hi-fi in order to keep the bike and move into a derelict squat masquerading as 'ideal bachelor pad' and doing your own washing and ironing, then (I already do the cooking)?If you you're going to be miserable, might as well be miserable in the comfort of your own home.

i married my first and only love 24 years ago! had 3 kids and are still together... in fact probably more in lust/love than ever... but we have had bad times... but i have never bin unfaithful or her... (apart from the incident with the welsh male choir!) he he kiddingsome people like it... some don't .. but staying together just because their 'married' dont make sense... if ya don't like someone... split.... if it's worth saving tho... u gotta work at it...

Monogomy....thats an easy one......I only ever ride one bike at a time.

Errr... yes, you did. Sorry. (Anyone know if there's a :wanker: smilie that I could perhaps use?)

Originally posted by adx but staying together just because their 'married' dont make sense... if ya don't like someone... split....All well and good in theory but plenty of people don't see they have a choice. Even where money isn't an issue, some people feel simply unable to meet members of the opposite sex, either through lack of confidence in their social or physical characteristics, or because they don't get the chance of interaction in their normal daily life.I've got a theory which says ugly stupid people get married and stay together for life. They can't believe that someone else has found them attractive so in a bid to keep the other person they get married and have ugly stupid kids. Ugly and stupid aren't exactly sexy, so throw in married with children and these people aren't in a position to have an affair. Unless of course the bloke is really rich, in which case he'll have loads of young attractive women throwing themselves at him in a bid to get security. Once they have a chunk of his money (ie. half the house, etc), they'll find a penniless hunk.At least an ugly stupid man can get birds if he has money - hence the business accumen of ugly stupid men.An ugly stupid women has been dealt a poor hand by fate, the best she can hope for is an ugly stupid family and to win the lottery.

Ooooh SM, you are so wise!

What about you SM? Where do fit into this picture? Are you a roguish easy-come easy-go wherever I lay my hat sorta fella, or ugly and dependable?

SM>does this mean my wife and i are 'ugly and stupid'? can't i just be stupid please? intersting theory m8 BUT... very much a generalisation methinks... obviously not ALL people who are married in a long term thing are the above, but nevertheless this could be the case for many... limited by options so to speak, therefore not wishing to spend a lifetime alone, they find a similar partner( due to not being able to socially interact very well) and get married.. then they are stuck... hmmm maybe SM has a point? anyone for an affair? quick!!
